The SBD runs fast. I changed the speed to match more closely to the AUD, but both sources had speed changes that varied throughout the recording. A minor amount of hiss reduction was used on the SBD tracks for ONLY the crowd sections. The SBD is very hissy due to improper Dolby A decoding. No hiss or changes to the SBD tracks during the musical sections.

Probably my favorite 78 show so far. The whole show just sounds so damn pleasant, and even Donna is in top form. Beautiful show from a not so great year.

Crazy He's gone end jam
It's only about 2 1/2 minutes, but just gets damn weird. I loved it.
These Jan 78 shows are friggin' awesome.
Great power. I rarely think this,
but……. awesome Drums!

I Beg to Differ
Jerry's voice sounds great. Kinda sexy, ya know, like Lauren Bacall.
But seriously, this is f-ing unbelievable! I'm from the 80's and 90's class of Deadhead graduates. I thought my favorite Music Never Stopped was from a show I saw in Oakland in '92 (BTW, the show sucked, but "Music" was amazing").
Thank for the show. A perfect recording of a perfect show.
I'm so grateful.

The 13th Month of 1977
If you are a fan of '77, as I, especially the final run of the year at Winterland, you will find this appealing and quite satisfying. Though Jerry's vocal show the lingering effects of the laryngitis he seemed determined to make up for it with his playing and the band follows happily along. An eclectic set list, but they all shine on this nite, even the Oldie Standards (i.e. Brown Eyed Women, Me & My Uncle, Jack Straw, etc.)glow brightly.
Thanks to all who put this together - clear as a bell to me and nice to hear Keith up front, it allows one to hear some good interplay between he and Jerry.
I hate to rate as I only review when I have been particularly moved and find the performance exceptionally worthy of comment and of your attention, so I have to shine the brightest lite on this.

Best ROSES of the '70s
So today my goal is download some of my favorite GD tapes to one of my three iPods. This show 1-10-78 is my FIRST pick. I LOVE this entire second set with ROSES being my personal favorite version. Because Jerry was recovering from laryngitis, the trippiness to his voice adds such much uniqueness to this performance. His voice is so moving. I have turned many on to this show ever the years. Download and enjoy!

Sounds like he was saving up for that fierce solo in B.E. women.
Tasty franklins tucked away at the end of set 2, jers voice was still hagged, but the show was sweet.

All A Buzz
This was my first of some 200 plus shows. The crowd was a buzz...in more ways than one...with anticipation regarding if Jerry would sing or not. Well, the opening notes are clearly Bertha and as Jerry steps to the mic, grin ear to ear, belts out "I had a hard run"...the crowd explodes with joy. You see, Jerry had laryngitis the few shows before and Bobby did all the singing. This was a great way to start my journey with the Dead!!

More MOTB Excellence
Another fine recording!!!!
Pretty good show too! Nice peppy Bertha>Good Lovin' opener to get things hopping right off the bat. despite some early technical problems, they are able to sustain the energy throughout the show.
Show is a solid 4 and the sound is definitely a 5. Hard to imagine anything sounding crisper and cleaner than this one!!
